Thousands of Empty Playlists?

I’ve been hearing of an iTunes Match glitch that somehow or another creates thousands of empty playlists. Here’s a script that will delete every empty playlist:

tell application “iTunes”

set y to (get index of last user playlist)

repeat with i from y to 1 by -1


set thisPlaylist to user playlist i

if special kind of thisPlaylist is none then

if not (exists track 1 of thisPlaylist) then

delete thisPlaylist

end if

end if

end try

end repeat

end tell

It may time-out because the number of actions it has to perform is so large. Just run it until the empties are gone.
